Historical Overview Section

1365-745BC
Assyria had been a tributary of the Mitanni until they in turn collapsed under pressure from the Hittite Empire , enabling Ashur-uballit I (1365 BC – 1330 BC) to again make Assyria an independent and conquering power. When even the Hittite Empire collapsed from onslaught of theie some-time Phrygian Allies?, Babylon and Assyria began to vie for regional dominance.

Tiglath-Pileser I is often regarded as the founder of the first Assyrian empire. In 1120 BC, he crossed the Euphrates, capturing Carchemish, and defeated the Mushki and the remnants of the Hittite Empire — even claiming to reach the Black Sea. He advanced to the Mediterranean, subjugating Phoenicia, where he hunted wild bulls. He also marched into Babylon twice, assuming the old title "King of Sumer and Akkad", although he was unable to depose the actual king in Babylonia, where the old Kassite dynasty had now succumbed to an Elamite one.
